All in a Day’s Work
In my mind, I am miles away.
Her voice brings me back into reality.
I see several hands receding and hear some sighs of relief.
With exasperation written over her face, she repeats on seeing my blank face.
I mumble something.
She smiles ,”Yes, that’s the correct answer”, and adds sarcastically, “for some other question!”
Linking this to Day 7 – Write Tribe Festival of Words #5

Woah, haven’t I seen this scene in college lectures too many times! Totally apt, and the relieved sighs and the receding hands are such a perfect imagery!
